Congratulations to Trevor for be awarded the Research Excellence Award nominated by Dr. Yanhai Yin.
AMES, Iowa – Plant scientists at Iowa State University have shed new light on a genetic pathway that influences both plant growth and disease resistance, making it a promising target for breeding new crop varieties that can fight pathogens without sacrificing performance.
New research led by Jianming Yu, agronomy, identifies clear patterns in how plants react to different environments that could lead to new ways of predicting crop performance.
A new federally funded center of excellence led by ISU scientists will analyze various structures and mechanisms in the swine genome with the goal of allowing pork producers to predict with greater accuracy the traits in their herds.
First Person is a series of interviews with the first authors of a
selection of papers published in Disease Models & Mechanisms,
helping early-career researchers promote themselves alongside their
papers. Laura Schultz is first author on 'Epigenetic regulators Rbbp4
AMES, Iowa – For three Iowa State University graduate students, winning the worldwide 2018 Food Solutions Challenge was more than an honor – it meant they could help reduce food waste in their homeland. The Iowa State team received $5,000 on May 20 for its proposal to improve the shelf life
Plant pathology and microbiology faculty have started moving their offices and labs into their new home in the Advanced Teaching and Research Building (ATRB), which also will house portions of the entomology and genetics, development and cell biology (GDCB) departments. Unlike most of his c
